World Development Report 2014: Risk and Opportunity

Asset Category: 
Asset Abstract: 

The World Development Report (WDR) 2014 examines how improving risk management can lead to larger gains in development and poverty reduction. It will argue that improving risk management is crucial to reduce the negative impacts of shocks and hazards, but also to enable people to pursue new opportunities for growth and prosperity. Risk management is also a shared responsibility that requires the active participation of different economic and social systems, as well as the State.

What Tavaana Students Have to Say

I give my utmost thanks to Tavaana for these truly useful and constructive courses. In every class I have taken, I have seen students taking part not only from inside and outside Iran but from Afghanistan and Tajikistan as well. I believe that Tavaana's efforts are doing more good for Persian speaking people than anything else currently being offered.
